Lose Holiday Weight with your copy machine.

Christmas Parties = Holiday Weight

Waiting for copies at the copy machine? Take this time to sneak in a quick leg workout or tone your tummy.  Stretching and moving your legs builds muscle strength and endurance and prevents aches and leg pains.

Build leg muscles while making copies

How to do it: While holding on to the copy machine for balance, bring your knee up and down, or after bringing your knee up, extend your leg back. Try pulsing your leg to really get your muscles burning.

Toning your tummy

• Start with feet flat on the floor.
• Stand tall at your copier.
• Hold your abdominal muscles tight.
• Extend one leg until it is level with your hip.
• Hold for ten seconds.
• Slowly lower leg.
• Repeat 15 times.
• Change legs.

These exercises are subtle enough that if you hear someone coming, you can quickly stop.

Give these links a try you already have the copier.

Power saving mode. How does it effect your energy savings and being green?

It’s amazing how each and every small thing we can do on a daily basis that will help with our environment.  You can easily save energy in your office,  school or organization without much effort.  If you have purchased a copier, printer or any other office equipment with an ENERGY STAR feature, you are on your way to help save our planet. It’s up to you to make sure you are using these power management settings properly to get the most effective cost and energy savings.

Don’t worry about recovery time, ENERGY STAR copiers will recover within 30 seconds after resuming from their low power saving mode. Setting the machine to it’s default energy saving mode will help you even if you don’t want to be bothered manually setting it up.

Any machine you have that you can utilize the ENERGY STAR feature is always helpful,  including computers. So many of us just walk away from them and don’t even think about them sitting there wasting energy, resources and your money!

It’s easy to do your part and once the settings are introduced, there’s nothing more to think about!

OEM vs. Compatible Ink and Toner Cartridges

What’s the difference? Yes, you can save money by purchasing compatible ink and toner cartridges; but at what cost? The first issue is that you don’t know what you are getting with the compatible cartridges. Who knows if it’s up to the manufacturer’s specifications. Also, it automatically voids your warranty with your manufacturer.If you have a contract with a dealer like Brothers II Business Machines, the repair will not be covered if it is caused by a non-OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) product.

Is it worth more in the long run to use a potential inferior product that could ultimately lead to the breakdown of your machine or produce a poor product? Do you want your business letters and forms to go out to your customers looking streaky or blotchy?

Brothers II Business Machines only uses OEM ink and toner cartridges. Yes, they cost a little more. But in the long run, they save you and your company time and money.
